Hi. Welcome. I created CookieMOMster because when I was a first time mom 6 years ago cookies saved me. I was in a whirlwind of sleepless nights, crying and baby drool. I ate lots of cookies and began writing. Writing had been my passion since I was young and I had forgotten how much it meant to me. It's funny how these little lives come into your life and cause chaos but at the same time allow you to re-discover yourself. Thank you to Konrad and Koby for that. So sit down have a cookie and read. I hope you enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy writing. Thanks for visiting. I'm glad you stopped by.

Flicker of HOPE

I recently received an e-mail from an avid reader of cookie-MOMster waiting patiently for my next blog. I wrote her back asking for ideas, I had none. My ideas have been frozen just like I have been. My inner candle is burning low and dim...not much light. I've had zero energy and zero creativity. It can be painful at times just trying to get one foot in front of the other to make it through daily life. Life's happenings can really kick the shit out of you. death, sickness, worry....
Wondering what plan does God truly have for us? No wonder my candle is almost out.....
Yet deep with-in I do believe God or spirit does have an almighty plan...death can come all too soon for our loved ones bringing us gut wrenching pain and grief yet deep with-in the sorrow we can feel HOPE that an Angel in heaven is up there just for us. sickness can come and take over our body yet it can not defeat our inner strength, we can reach inside our being and find HOPE to carry us on our journey ...worry can gobble our soul and take our laughter yet it will not bury our character as we take a deep breath and pray for HOPE to guide us through the stress.
And with the memory of September 11 I light a candle in silent HOPE to all remembered and say a prayer of thanks for it is because of them I am able to re-light my inner candle and bravely place one foot in front of the other to embrace another day believing there is a plan.

God Bless to all of you suffering and may you find your HOPE.


  1. Kim,
    Amazing writing!! Faith and Hope get all of us through--the smiles on children's faces give us back this hope and faith too--each day the sun shines and even on cloudy days we get the glimmer or reminder that if we have Faith and Hope we can truly find some peace I love you Pam

  2. You are a brave woman. Thank you for putting into words these things that are sometimes too hard to admit...

  3. Great job, Kim. When we can use September 11 as a catalyst with which to rally ourselves, then the terrorists have not won. Thanks for a splendid piece.

  4. Kim-
    Beautifully stated. Your heartache has given you inner strength to live life fully. I think of the ocean and walk Revere beach...yup Revere beach as it is in its vastness has many lessons to teach. i think of my favorite books, my favorite memories and my growing family that I love. What could be better than that???
